Goofs

Lt. Don Jardian (Ken Wahl) is seen saluting a superior officer while uncovered (with his cap or hat removed). Naval services do not salute while uncovered. Later, he is seen covered (wearing his uniform cap) while visiting nurse Deborah Solomon (Cheryl Ladd) in sick bay. Naval service personnel remove their covers indoors and are particularly forbidden to wear them in sick bay or a chow hall. See more »

Quotes

Don Jardian: I had to kill a man to get this rice.
Zuma: Yeah, and the whole fucking valley heard you do it, too.

This movie was so beautiful. After seeing it, I read some of the reviews and I thought they were not anywhere near to what I saw. I always like to see movies where people find love where they least expected it. I just knew that in the end, he would find her at the hospital. This movie was perfect. I would definitely see it again.
